Technology has expanded the limits of the possible—and that includes your child’s learning. Thanks to technological advances, children can now enjoy a wider variety of learning experiences at younger ages.

Why early learning is important 

First and foremost, early learning gives motivated and curious toddlers a chance to understand the world around them. While most children don’t begin formal education until the age of five, their brain development is already well under way. According to UNICEF, children who benefit from early learning often grow up to become more productive members of society. They claim it reduces the chances of the children engaging in antisocial behavior later on. What’s more, a separate study conducted when the original subjects were between four and six, and again in their mid-30s, showed that they were more likely to graduate from both high school and college.

Technology vs. traditional methods: what’s better?

With clear benefits, the question shifts from, “Should I educate my child?” to, “How do I educate my child?” It’s tempting to think about education in black and white terms—technology or traditional methods, physical games or apps. However, there’s no reason both can’t be effective tools to help your child’s early development.

Lingokids is an innovative tool that provides added features you can’t get with traditional toys. For example, our hectic lifestyles mean it can be a challenge to keep your children engaged while carrying out other tasks. With Lingokids, the interactive puzzles, songs, vocabulary games, and audiobooks can keep your child learning and entertained while you take care of what needs to be done.

How technology has improved early learning in recent years

Beyond allowing parents just a little more free time, the technology itself provides many added benefits for young children. The personalized and interactive learning environment helps increase engagement and aids in their education. It allows the child to embark on an independent adventure of creative exploration within a meaningful context, discovering new information as they play.

One of the most noticeable benefits of early learning is that it prepares children for school. Lingokids follows the Lingo Ludic Method, which is the most effective way to get your child ready for this new adventure, using fun games and letting you track their progress!
